The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) three-dimensional boundary layer flow of an incompressible Casson fluid in a porous medium is investigated. Heat transfer characteristics are analyzed in the presence of heat generation/absorption. Laws of conservation of mass, momentum and energy are utilized. Results are computed and analyzed for the velocities, temperature, skin-friction coefficients and local Nusselt number.
